Oozing Chocolate and Pecan Nut Brownies Recipe

Chocoholics - this easy, scrumptious chocolate brownie is for you. When eaten straight from the oven you get an intense chocolate flavour with the pecan nut texture and best of all - the hot, oozing chocolate pieces. I will be using this recipe, multiplied several times, for a close friend’s wedding in January.

Yields : 8 large pieces

Ingredients :

180g Unsalted Butter - Melted

¾ cup Cocoa Powder

1½ cup Castor Sugar

5ml Vanilla Extract

4 Eggs – lightly beaten

100g Cake Flour

¾ t Baking Powder

80g Chocolate pieces

Pinch Salt

90g Pecan Nuts – chopped

Method :

1) Put the melted butter, cocoa, sugar, vanilla and eggs into a bowl and combine

2) Add the rest of the ingredients to this above mixture

3) Grease a 20x24cm tin with a thin layer of butter and dust with about 15ml cocoa powder

4) Pour the above mixture into this tin

5) Bake at 150' C for 30 minutes or until firm in the centre

6) Remove from the oven and allow for 5 minutes of cooling before removing from the tin

7) Cut and serve
